Drunken Idiot Nearly Kills Twin Brother

A New Jersey teenager has been arrested after “allegedly” driving drunk, punching his sister, and nearly killing his twin brother. The family that flays together stays together.

The siblings of a West Caldwell 18-year-old charged in a drunken driving crash that seriously injured his twin brother begged him not to get behind the wheel as he tried to leave a house party in town.

Anthony Dattoli was “obviously intoxicated” when he made his way to an Audi A4 parked outside a home on Annin Road early on the morning of June 27.

Dattoli punched his sister in the face and then his twin brother jumped on the vehicle’s hood as they tried to stop him from driving.

I’ve seen that one or two times in my career, and it’s never a good idea.

Dattoli pulled away with his brother on the hood and drove almost three blocks before losing control of the car and slamming into a tree near the corner of Central Avenue and Taylor Drive at about 1:20 a.m.

Dattoli’s brother will have to have one of his legs amputated. Naturally, the idiot driver came away without a scratch. Here’s hoping he spends the bulk of his life in prison.

  1. Evidently 18 is not too early to start spending some serious time in prison. Hope they throw the book at the jerk!


  2. What is it with drunks & audis? Last week you had a story of idiot driver swereved to miss an animal (texting) & driving an audi into a house. Last nov. an idiot drove into my sister house. Audi. Drunk. On drugs. ????


  3. Audis have replaced Volvos on my list of cars to watch closely in traffic.
    If someone does something stupid, it is usually in Audis, BMWs, Cheap Mercedes, and Motorcycles.

    Motorcycles mostly because they are too damned vulnerable small, and easily to lose track of. But there are some idiot motorcycle drivers with death wishes too.

    If limb transplants ever become practical, I know the idiot on the hood can find a donor in prison.


  4. Cathy – Maybe an Audi comes with its own dashboard bar?

    RD – Good idea. I’ve learned that most of the people in my city drive like maniacs. I cycle about ten miles a day, nearly every day. Most streets have a bike lane, and I ride very close to the curb, because these jackasses drive wherever they want. I assume I’ll eventually get hit by a car.

    When driving to work, the people in da ‘hood drive through red lights like they aren’t even there, drive in the wrong lane, and basically make a mess of things, because entitlement.
